Dodgers, Adam Kennedy Nearing Deal

The Los Angeles Dodgers and free-agent utility infielder Adam Kenndy are nearing a deal, according to Tony Jackson of ESPN Los Angeles. Jackson says length and terms of the deal weren't immediately available, but the two sides are nearing a deal.

A deal makes sense for both sides; Kennedy is from the Southern California area and the Dodgers are looking for a utility infielder. Kennedy can play multiple infield positions; but as one should expect, the 35-year-old's best defensive days are behind him.

Kennedy, 35, hit .234/.277/.355 in 405 plate appearances last season for the Seattle Mariners. He spent time at first, second and third base throughout the year.

Out of pure speculation, I can see Kennedy landing a contract comparable to the one John McDonald signed with the Arizona Diamondbacks. Even though both are poor hitters, McDonald is a good defender that can play the middle infield. Kennedy can play second and the corners, but his best days are well behind him.
